Ever wondered what a stress-free commute would feel like? Only in a perfect world, right? It’s hard to imagine getting to and from work without ever being on the edge of a nervous breakdown. But now there is a calming solution and it’s coming to East London!
Good Yoga Life (GYL) is a group of wellbeing enthusiasts who take their teaching out of the studio and bring it to places where people live and work, hosting residencies and pop-up experiences in a variety of venues across London.
From 14 November, GYL is hosting a hip-hop yoga pop-up in Hackney House, Shoreditch. Hip-hop yoga is said to “create a positive mindset whilst taking you on a natural, head-hopping high”. Classes will run throughout the morning at 7am, 7.45am and 8.30am, lunchtime at 12.30pm and 1.30pm, and after work at 5.30pm and 6.30pm, Monday to Friday.
Is there really any need for stress-busters such as this? The nearest Tube station to Hackney House is Old Street, used by 70,000 commuters each day, most of them under 35 years of age. When surveyed, a whopping 41 percent of commuters aged 18-34, said that their daily commute is getting “increasingly stressful.” In a comparative study of commuters across five European cities, thousands said that the stress of commuting is comparable to relationship breakdown, and many reported that commuting is more stressful than their job. For delays and unpredicatbility, London scored worse than any other city.
